Poplar Street Cafe & Wine Bar

Tapas Restaurant

Cozied up in the historic Morrison House in the Fourth Ward, Poplar Street offers a focused menu of Peruvian-inspired charcuterie, cheese, salads, and desserts. Insofar as entrées go, the arugula and Anjou pear salad with Gorgonzola, walnuts, and olive oil proves most popular, but the cheese and meat board winds up being a date-night favorite, especially when paired with a nice bottle of wine. The homey spot is frequented by working types zeroed in on their laptops throughout the day, but the scene changes at dinner, what with groups of friends hoping to share a meal while enjoying mellow live music.
